The correct answer is- Paranoid personality disorder, schizoid personality disorder, schizotypal personality.

Paranoid personality disorder, schizoid personality disorder, schizotypal personality are the group of personality disorders classified as cluster A personality disorders. Schizotypal, in particular, is known to be odd and eccentric. A person with a schizotypal personality disorder has problems forming and maintaining relationships with others.

They often have odd behaviors, perceptions, and appearance. They also have a “magical” sense of thinking. They have disorganized/eccentric thoughts and behavior. However, they lack delusions and hallucinations, and for these reasons, they cannot be classified as schizophrenia.

Option A is incorrect because the group of personality disorders listed is cluster C, which represents “worried and Wimpy” personality disorders.

Option C is incorrect. It shows cluster B personality disorders, which include the “wild” personality disorders.

The antisocial personality disorder is a type of personality wherein people would like to manipulate other people into doing what will only be beneficial for the person. This is odd because it can violate the rights of other people. Those who have borderline personality disorder may have a hard time conveying the type of emotion that they want. They can become intensely angry or intensely sad for a short period of time.

Those who have histrionic personality disorder may have a hard time whenever the attention is not on them. They may do things that will make people notice them more as compared to the others. The narcissistic personality disorder is the tendency of people to make people think that they are the best even if they are not. There are times when they can talk about things that they have not really accomplished yet.
